In Memory of Our Friend and Colleague Joe Koma

In Memory of Joe Koma

Joe Koma, the longtime DGYB Director of Field Maintenance, passed away suddenly on January 5, 2018. Joe was a selfless volunteer who worked countless hours maintaining our playing fields and field equipment. He was the ultimate behind the scenes volunteer who made our fields playable even in conditions that shut down fields elsewhere. Joe also served many years as a Scoutmaster. Downers Grove lost a true friend to our youth.
Our Condolences to Joe's family. His colleagues on the DGYB Board will miss Joe greatly.
